Influential Person of the Month October 2018 – Erudite Book Club
I started Erudite Book Club initiative in September 2018 for reading a book a month related to an influential person. For that, I researched the influential people who are born in the month of October to select Influential Person of the Month for Erudite Book Club. I found, there are a lot of great people born in the month of October. Thus, I posted polls on social media and asked people to vote for Influential Person of the month.
More Details –
For our Erudite Book Club on Goodreads, we had two influencers to choose from. First was Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi and the other influencer was Oscar Wilde.
Based upon the votes gathered across social media(counting only distinct votes), Oscar Wilde is the Influencer of the month of October.
